Have been in contact with one swedish user earlier.
Bought a couple of Fiire Chiefs together with him.
I know of at least one other and there are probably lot of others that do not discuss on this forum.
Haven´t seen anything from him the last half year or so.
4-5 month ago there was an article about a swedish guy that was building a new house and had lmce integrated to control lights, media etc.
Don´t know if anyone know more about it.
As for EPG. I have no good input at the moment. Have used mythbuntu earlier with success.
But for lmce I cannot get mythtv to work reliable and therefore I have decided to wait for the upcoming vdr integration that is hopefully available in 2 weeks time or so (it´s in testins now).
To control power, lights and other stuff I believe PLCbus and zwave is the choice.
For control of pumps and other things there is motor controls for both of the above mentioned systems.
however I would go for relay control with some kind of interface to lmce. Either through serial or USB.
Then we can create a GSD device to control the IO board.
It should not be too hard.
There is always some minor parameter settings and programming involved if you want to control things through GSD.
Luckily there is a lot of helpful people on the irc chat.
I have done som research on using relays already, since I want to control my HVAC at home to automatically control fan speed etc.
Some candidates are:http://libk8055.sourceforge.net/http://vesta.homelinux.net/mediawiki/index.php/The_K8056_interface_board_from_Velleman_on_Linuxhttp://www.easydaq.biz/
- Interesting products but perhaps lack of Linux support. Need to investigate more.
I´m located in Norrköping. How about you?
